    Are these brochures indicative of the new 2017 UK Civic?

    I would say more or less with a few body kits to make the UKDM cars a bit different.

    Spotted one of these this morning on the M4, on the back of a Honda transporter. It was LHD, in white.

    From the back - which is all I could really see - the styling looks great.

    The american site shows that, with the exception of the LX trim level, they all have CVT gearboxes. Lets hope that is just a USA thing.

    I think the turbo can only be had with CVT while NA engine can be had with either. From 2017 both boxes will be available with turbo

    If will be for now, but in 10-20 years I predict most cars in the UK will be automatic as standard, with manual as an ever decreasing option and a rarity. It's just the way things are going...the technology exists, people want most things to be easier, even F1 cars are automatic these days.

    Pretty sure we'll get the manual tranny over here.

    Saying that, I think this is a cracking looking car in all regards.

  12. This car will go down a storm in the UK and is going to put Honda back on the map.

    Have been advised by a senior Honda dealership principal that UK tenth Gen Civic will have independent rear suspension as Accord, there is likely to be a Type-S with 200bhp from 1.5 lite turbo engine & that Type-R may well have 4WD & even more power that current ninth generation Civic Type-R. I have test driven a ninth generation Civic Type-R recently & contemplated purchase but now decided to wait for ninth generation Type-S.

    It'd be nice to see some of the NSX technology filter down into the more affordable models.
    Saw a concept 10th Generation coupe and thought they had lost some of the clean lines and visual impact in the transition to manufacturing, but the sedan and coupe look very good IMO.

    Is that a parcel shelf sub in the coup? Oh yes please!

    Such a shame they won't be selling the saloon or the coupe version, both of them look superb and better than the hatch, even in limited numbers give customers the choice of more bodyshapes.

    Agreed with exec, the hatch is not as good looking. An international model range should be just that, with all styles available to all markets.

  18. Costs a lot of dosh to make a car RHD and road-legal - not viable if not many people will buy it unfortunately - Honda isn't a charity and in Europe we prefer our hatches and estates.

    True perhaps, although that hasn't stopped them selling saloons, coupes in the past. I think the coupe would do very well, as they are popular in UK, and it would bring back some youthful & sporty image to Honda again. You can sell most things if you put the marketing in...
